GAS TANK BURIAL

Advantages of Gas Tank Burial

Aside from the obvious reason that underground storage tanks (USTs) are easier on the eyes, you may also choose to have your gas tank buried because USTs are usually less susceptible to fire or explosion, and they may have less complicated venting requirements than aboveground tanks. USTs are also used when on-site fuel blending is needed, which can help to conserve fossil fuels and reduce gas emissions.

Gas tanks are usually buried deep enough that the top of the tank is no less than about 20 inches beneath the surface of the soil, but an access panel will still be visible above ground. This small panel is used for filling the gas tank, inspections, and general maintenance. Newer tanks are also coated to prevent damage from rust or plants that can compromise the tank, resulting in gas contaminating the ground.

“Senior technician, Joe Anderson, made plumbing repairs to an upstairs bathtub to seal leaks from flooding through kitchen ceiling downstairs. This has been an ongoing serious daily problem in this apartment since April 2015. Mr. Anderson was the first person to have a camera system with him to assess areas where water was accessing kitchen ceiling. He explained in detail what he did and what he found wrong. Water had been flowing from next door apartment whenever they used their shower for over a year now. Mr. Anderson stated he needed to get permission from apartment management office in order to proceed to correct issues in next door apartment. Management has not allowed that access yet. He also noted that a single shower curtain in the apartment next door was on the outside of that tub and felt that could be creating some of the flooding issues. Thank you Mr. Anderson for being my angel and making these repairs.” –-Lyda G.
